    Lengthy interview with 2 managers, the entire interview took over 1 hour. There was a lot of time spent on job history and making the switch out of the hospitality industry. We spent the majority of the time discussing how my experience would be an ideal fit. They asked a lot of questions about ideas I had for using my knowledge to make the sale.

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich über einen Personalvermittler beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte eine Woche. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im März 2015 bei Southern Wine & Spirits of America (Bolingbrook, IL (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Applied for another position about a month before receiving a call from HR and was suggested for another position. Did about a 15 minute or less phone interview about my employment history, what I'm looking for, and a few scenario questions. Then was told about the history of the company and set up an in person interview with HR and supervisor of the department later that evening after I had to apply for the suggested position on the company's website earlier that morning.
    Met HR and supervisor 2 days later and had a few more scenario questions, what I'm looking for, employment history. Then went over the details of the position and some of the same details of the company's history and what they do. Then was shown around the company (sales conference area, cafeteria, warehouse, office/cubes, HR office, etc) and in the warehouse HR showed me and explained how they worked. I was having high hope for this company when I was shown around practically a bit of the building. Then when I was leaving, even the receptionist said that she hoped I get the position. But apparently maybe all of that happens to every candidate they interview since I was told that if I was selected, would have a 2nd interview with the director and they would know of their decision by the end of the following week. Left a voicemail message on HR and never heard back. At least respond back to me and leave me a voicemail (as I requested on my message) or reply back via the email I sent when I had to email HR support to have my thank you note forwarded to the specific HR agent- I've already included the same thank you note along with my resume which I gave to them during my interview, but wanted to make sure that I really wanted the job. Oh well, it never hurts to try hard, even when I don't get any feedback returned.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    This was a situational interview, held by 4 District Managers. The interview lasted about 40 minutes before being turned over to me to ask questions. There were approximately 10 questions asked and were broken down into three parts. First, what they are looking for, and how it is defined. Second, tell us about a time where you faced this issue and how did you handle it. Last, what was the outcome of the situation.

    I submitted my resume and job application online. I was called to schedule an interview two days later. The first interview was one to one with the person that would be my supervisor. Very laid-back interview. He called me back the next business day to come in for a panel interview in two days. Came in for the 3-person panel. Slightly more formal interview. I got a call the next day with a job offer.

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 2 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Februar 2015 bei Southern Wine & Spirits of America (Philadelphia, PA (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Applied online and was contacted via phone a few days later for an in-person interview. Was interviewed by a director (who set up the interview) and his manager. Interview went smoothly and lasted about 30 minutes. Was told they were finishing up interviews for the week and would be in touch the following week with a decision, as they wanted someone to start asap. Never heard back from anyone at Southern Wine & Spirits. For a company whose leaders pride themselves on customer service, they certainly did not follow-thru, nor did they take the time to send an email.

    The District Manager reviewed my resume with me sitting across from him and asked a few questions. Then he began reading from a list of questions that you usually see on sales aptitude tests. I read reviews that this position offered a salary, bonus, and gas allowance. He explained that because Southern didn't have a lot a national name brands they did offer a salary and with different sales bonus'. No gas allowance is available but I should look forward to my IRS tax refund check. The interview lasted 35 minutes and with him telling me HR will get back to me quickly because this was an open position and they needed to fill it right away. I said I would need to give my current employer 2 weeks notice. I never heard from Southern Wines & Spirits again.

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 2 Monate. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Dezember 2014 bei Southern Wine & Spirits of America.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    It took about two months from the time I applied to the time I received an interview. The woman interviewing me said the positions needed to be filled "last week" so I was wondering why it took so long to hear back from them. We spent about an hour talking about the job role, and while I had significant sales experience, she stated that without restaurant experience, it wouldn't be an ideal place to start within the company. I was slightly frustrated, because if that was required, why would I have been contacted at all? She was recruited out of college for the same role, so maybe that was not the case at the time.

    She was very kind, and upfront about the job expectation. The holidays are the busiest time of the year, so if you like to take vacation then, this would not be a good fit. She was also upfront about having to buy product to make goals, and how sometimes you have to sell product that isn't very good and the customers do not want it.

    Ideally, one would start out in merchandising to learn the products and the industry before moving into sales.

    To be completely honest, by the time I had gotten the interview, I was pretty disillusioned with the company just by reading reviews on this website. I feel that if I had not done my research, I would have tried incredibly hard to get this job. I am not sure whether it was a good thing or a bad thing that I was talked out of this company before I even got there. I really didn't try as hard as I normally would have during the interview, and I think it showed. She recommended other roles to me as I left.

    I was not contacted whatsoever after the interview, and I thought that was in bad taste. A phone call or an email would have been polite and professional.

    Reviews of companies do need to be taken with a grain of salt. If you are looking for something bad or good about a company, you will find it, based on your filter.

    • This was a very typical interview. I don't believe anything caught me off guard.   Frage beantworten
